As a part of my work for the Historic Hotels we spent two nights at the marvellous hotel Losby Gods a few weeks ago. This place is amazing! The best thing about it is that it is only a 20 minutes drive from the centre of Oslo – and when you get there you feel that you are far, far away from everything urban. The hotel is situated in the middle of the woods – and you can go hiking right out of the hotel door.
The old part of the house from 1850 was once built as a private home, and has beautifully restored rooms. It is now integrated with the new and modern hotel building.
The library is stunning with original woodpanelling on the walls.
Old trees in the garden makes me imagine the grandeur of the house in the earlier days.
The lady of the house used to sit here and have her morning coffee whilst watching the children pass outside of the window, on their way to school.
The men´s lounge was a place for cigars and brandy.
A bookmark next to the bed in our room – a nice detail – I like!
You find antiques throughout the house.
Nice details in the breakfast room – three different milktypes put into bottles rather than serving the dull carton.
Old ceramic plates in the breakfast room.
Morning fog and the early bird golfer right outside our window.
I like that the hotel is combining traditional and historical style with new fresh design objects, too. Here the ultra modern Moo lamp from Norhern Lighting in the bar.
